Mt. Carmel, IL- September 4, 2019. For Immediate Release

Pacific Press announced today that it will merge with its sister company, MULTIPRESS. Based out of the Columbus, Ohio area for the last several decades, MULTIPRESS will merge all of its business operations with Pacific Press Technologies, at its Mt. Carmel, Illinois headquarters. The announcement comes after MULTIPRESS moved its production operations to Pacific Press’ large 280,000 square foot facility in September of 2018.

Both companies have mutually benefited from sharing the expertise of Pacific’s in-house production staff. With the merge, Pacific Press and MULTIPRESS will maintain their individual brand identities, but will join internally to combine engineering, sales, parts, marketing, accounting, HR and all other departments. The partnership enables two American brands to continue to deliver the best in hydraulic presses and press brakes on the market.

“This is a great outcome for both RLI brands and their customers, and we couldn’t be more excited about our future together. With a shared passion for creating high quality, customized machinery, we believe combining the strength of both engineering, production and service teams will provide unsurpassed experience, quality and value” said President Chris Shelton.

Over the next several months, the brands are expected to update their websites, literature, machinery and more. While the merge will enable both brands to grow, innovate and best serve their customer bases, they will continue to focus on their roots and rich American history. Both Pacific Press and MULTIPRESS will continue to produce their branded, custom engineered machinery to customer’s specifications, whether it be a 3,000 ton press brake, a 1,200 ton 4-column press, or a 6 ton bench press. Along with their well-known product lines, Pacific Press and MULTIPRESS are committed to a renewed focus on machine service, and spare parts support.

Today, as a united front, both the Pacific Press and MULTIPRESS brands will work to continue their tradition as the industry’s leading provider of metal forming solutions.
